alike.com.ph—First it was her makeup routine that we were obsessed with, and recently, Kelsey Merritt revealed her nighttime skincare regimen—and, of course, we took some notes.
After debuting as the first Filipino model to ever walk the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Kelsey has earned a lot of online followers from the YouTube videos American publications have been producing. It’s mostly about beauty, yes, but the 22-year-old’s simplicity and quirkiness definitely shows through.
The Harper’s Bazaar video comes with a lot of revelations, and the most surprising one of all is the fact that Kelsey skips the facial cleanser after she removes her makeup.
“In my experience, I would always break out when I would use a cleanser. And there was this one time when I got lazy and I just stopped using cleanser and my skin cleared out,” Kelsey shared.
“I was talking to a dermatologist about this and she was like it’s actually healthier for your skin’s natural oils to come out,” she added.
After watching the video of her skincare routine, Kelsey’s top tip can be summarized in one sentence: Listen to your skin. She showed a variety of products that she uses on the daily, but mostly opted for the options that helped with hydration—something that she felt was what her skin needed that day.
She’s a natural on the camera, and an obvious believer in La Mer—50 percent of her routine feature their skincare products!
